26 Mar Contemporary approach to elegant, classic interiors
Exquisite taste, elevated quality and a refined sense of luxury – these are the principles on which Sahco was founded. Using classic interiors as a starting point, but always infusing them with an elegant, contemporary touch, Sahco has nearly two hundred years of experience in the world of textiles and interior textiles.
Sahco’s story starts in 1831 when the company’s founder decided to build on generations of his family’s knowledge of the textile trade and set up his own business in Southern Germany.
Since then, rich textures, sophisticated colours and classic design characterise textiles that speak of timeless appeal and refined taste have remained the hallmark of Sahco’s products. Soft neutral colours are used as a base for many schemes, with bolder graphic details adding the interest but always staying within the realms of simple and harmonious design. Regularly used by leading interior designers, architects and furniture manufacturers, Sahco fabrics have found themselves in the most beautiful homes, hotels and even yachts – safe in the knowledge that their luxurious appeal adds the perfect touch.
In May 2018, Sahco was acquired by Kvadrat, one of the world’s leading design textile companies based in Denmark. With a new creative team in place and the shared knowledge of two rich design heritages, Sahco enters an exciting new phase in its long history.
For 2019, the new creative team of Design Director Anna Vilhelmine Ebbesen and Art Director Vincent van Duysen have continued this tradition with a collection of textiles that are warm, rich and soulful and that will play their own role in homes across the world.
The six different upholstery fabrics play with texture and tactility. Irregular yarns of chenille and boucle add a tactile aspect to the surface, whilst a small graphic check in a cut and loop velvet is created by mixing mat and shiny yarns. Meanwhile a bold stripe in velvet explores either contrasting or tonal colours, allowing furniture to be as striking or discrete as you wish.
There are also 6 new drapery fabric designs. This 2019 curtain collection use texture to add a sumptuous and luxurious effect. Matt and shiny surfaces interact to create beautiful floral designs while delicate linen becomes sheer in its lightness. At the other end of the scale, a bold graphic print provides a powerful statement in strong earthy colours or more muted neutral shades. The diversity of the collection, with its complex jacquards, sophisticated colour combinations and manifold surfaces offers a huge opportunity to create exciting and beautiful interiors.
Throughout the whole collection, the richness of colour adds to the sense of texture and warmth. Rich earthy tones such as rust, charcoal, clay and khaki are mixed with the deep hues of various woods and are contrasted with more intense shades of brick red, cinnamon and sage green. Multiple shades of natural white and hues of smoky grey and blue provide serenity alongside more vivid colours, resulting in a harmonious, refined palette.
